Is this the end of fingerprint employee time clocks?

A recent case in court has shocked everybody, an employee who refused to sign in with his finger biometrically to work every day was sacked, he then sued the company he worked for and lost his first court case, appealed and then won in the high court.

This should send the shivers down the backs of every company asking employees to sign in and sign out with a biometric time clock. This was the first time a case like this was bought to court.

His case was simple – my biometrics are my biometrics and you cannot have them and you can’t force me to give them to you.

Get rid of your biometric employee time clock before you have the same issues at your workplace

Deputy evacuation reporting

I get asked this question about evacuation and time and attendance a lot,  typically a time and attendance system has all the hourly paid employees who sign in and sign out each day but management data is missing as they do not physically sign in and each each day. Some customers will ask can we use the access control data for management as they all tap into the access control system. Access control system data is not much good if you do not have a turnstile to make sure single file only, when access control is on a door one person swipes and opens the door and multiple people can walk through without swiping.

So what is the best way to get an evacuation report from a time and attendance system?

The answer is quite easy really, you can implement a visitor management system that has the ability to receive all the employee clocking’s from the time and attendance system and allows salaried staff to sign in and out their presence on site for evacuation, all of the data comes together in one evacuation module including any contractors currently signed in on site.

Deputy employee scheduling and shift worker assistant explains GDPR

Posted on: April 21, 2018 | Categories: Compliance scheduling StaffRosters Blog Time & Attendance

Deputy recently like all cloud software solutions put out a statement regarding the upcoming changes due to the GDPR.

At Deputy it’s our mission to improve the lives of shift workers, globally.

To help us achieve this mission, and in preparation for new EU data protection laws, we’ve updated our Privacy Policy, Subscription Agreement and internal processes.

These updates ensure we are compliant with the new European laws (known as the General Data Protection Regulations, or GDPR), and give you more transparency and control over how we deal with your personal information.

To keep you informed, we’ve addressed a few common questions about the GDPR below:

What is the GDPR?
The GDPR is a comprehensive data protection law that replaces existing European privacy laws and strengthens the protection of personal data in an increasingly data driven world. The GDPR is enforceable in each EU member state and gives individuals greater control over their personal data.

Why does it matter now?
The GDPR comes into effect on 25 May 2018. We’re updating our processes, systems and policies now to make sure we’re fully prepared.

What is personal data?
Any information related to a natural person (individual) that can be used to directly or indirectly identify the person. It can be anything from a name, a photo, an email address, bank details, posts on social networking websites, medical information, or a computer IP address.

Who does it affect?
The GDPR applies to any organisation that processes personal data of EU individuals, regardless of whether the organisation has a physical presence in the EU. For Deputy customers, that’s any organisation with one or more employees in the EU.

What do I need to do?
Our new Privacy Policy and Subscription Agreements will go into effect from today. Please read the updated Subscription Agreement and Privacy Policy and make sure you familiarise yourself with their contents.

If you’d like to learn more about the GDPR and the changes we’re making, we’ve created an FAQ’s page. Read the FAQ’s here.

Thanks,
The Deputy team.

Workplace compliance – How do you manage your scheduled employees compliance?

Deputy has had for a long time the ability to record skills/qualifications against an individual however Deputy lacked any real compliance by having no checks and balances against the qualification entered into the system.

We now have a game changer…..Deputy now includes the ability to not only register the skill/qualification you can now enter details around the qualification including expiry dates so you can be notified.

 

So, what’s new exactly?

  • Manage Expiry – Set expiry dates so you manage training that requires renewal. Also, if training expires, Deputy will automatically warn you
  • Upload a File – Keep full documentation/photo/certificate of all your training. So if you are ever audited, it’s there in a few clicks!
  • Enter a Comment – Leave a quick note to provide additional information about your training requirements


A valid drivers license

To help with the new elements in training, we’ve also introduced new icons to keep you aware
Here’s what each of them mean:

The ‘ticked’ icon means that the training requirement is still valid, and has not yet expired.

The ‘paper clip’ icon indicates that there’s a file uploaded for this training requirement.

The ‘speech bubble’ icon means that there’s comment attached to this training requirement.

The ‘warning’ icon means that the current training module has already expired.

How does it work?

Start by editing your employee’s profile and scrolling to the Job Information section. Then, add a training requirement and click on the ‘Edit’ icon to add further details.

Watch how easy this is to set up
